I am disappointed to see the recent gentrification in this neighborhood. However, I am in favor of amenities that are working to help lower income households in the neighborhood, such as The Co Op at First, which assists Barnum West residents in starting their own sustainable gardens. Overall, Barnum West is an alright neighborhood within walking distance of Newland Elementary and other small parks.

The employment in this area is not the greates nor the badest. Similar jobs like taco bell, Mc donalds, Burger king offer minimum wage. But other then that if you have good resume and are a great achiving person it should'nt be hard for you to find a job.
